Thomas Merton's Struggle With Peacemaking ~ Peace of Solitude

The world of men has forgotten the joys of silence, the peace of solitude, which is necessary, to some extent, for the fullness of human living. Man cannot be happy for long unless he is in contact with the springs of spiritual life which are hidden in the depths of his own soul. If man is exiled constantly from his own home, locked out of his spiritual solitude, he ceases to be a true person.
~ Thomas Merton
The catholic Church once asked… Can you trust Thomas Merton? Which to me is more than enough reason to listen when he speaks of Peace of Solitude.
